October 18, (THEWILL) – The suspended national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, says he has no intention of withdrawing the case challenging his removal from court.
A statement by his media adviser, Ike Abonyi, said Secondus is in court to seek justice and save the party from manipulation.
“The attention of the media office of Secondus has been drawn to an unsubstantiated report claiming that he is under pressure to withdraw his case against the party from court.
“The truth which the said news did not state is that Secondus is not in court against the party, but was dragged to court by persons bent on hijacking the soul of the party.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the media office wishes to restate that Secondus is really under pressure for justice and will seek it anywhere to save the party from destruction,” the statement said.
It added that the party leaders were aware of the situation and knew what to do to rectify the problem.
“Nothing short of justice will save PDP from the current situation. For avoidance of doubt, the justice Secondus is seeking is as enshrined in the party’s constitution which is supreme.
“The constitution states clearly how a national chairman and any national officer can be sanctioned even where there is a known breach, talk less of where there is none.”
